Mary lays this out right at the start of guide “Warren had little usage for normal Wall Street exchange. He didn’t seem to care which way the Dow Jones Industrial Average went, and he definitely had no use for all the soothsayers and their predictions. In fact, he acted as if the whole stock exchange didn’t exist. He never checked out a graph, and also if anyone tried to offer him a supply pointer, he would generally shut him or her off … He appeared to care just concerning the individual businesses he wanted owning.”

The exceptional businesses, on the other hand, have something called a “customer monopoly” choosing them. When a firm produces items with “some distinctive attributes that are particularly eye-catching to customers, who then form an accessory to a company and also the products it sells,” that company has a consumer syndicate.
The second half of the book is called “Advanced Buffettology” and takes an extra measurable look at a few of the Buffett devices such as predicting prices of return, projecting future revenues, and also playing the short term arbitrage video game. To cover it up, Mary provides a couple of study of supplies that Buffett has in fact acquired, and also walks through his probably rationale for making the investments that he did.
